I made no mistakes. I pointed out yours. You’re just compounding your mistakes now because Pony Boy, whether s/he realized it or not (probably did) is talking mainly about per capita stats.
"Of course Costa Rica will have a higher generation of renewable per their portfolio, because they have better geographical conditions for hydropower in relation to their relatively low population. "
Makes no sense. There’s no characteristic of a small population that makes it automatic that clean safe renewables will be used. People and countries have to have renewable resources, then they have to decide to use them, and while some countries have done that, the US, with arguably the best renewable resources in the world and astounding wealth and infrastructure to develop them, hasn’t. Costa Rica has put us to shame.
You continue to make judgments using meaningless and mistaken parameters that lead to deceptive and misleading conclusions. Then you unload on people who point out that you’re making judgments using meaningless and mistaken parameters that lead to deceptive and misleading conclusions. Please consider the possibility that you’re making a mistake.
It’s as if you were measuring angles using inches instead of degrees. Someone points out that you should use degrees when measuring angles, (because inches are a meaningless measure in the situation, because the answer will vary depending on how far up the angle you measure) and you go off on them for talking about degrees when your post said nothing about degrees. Of course that is exactly the problem–you didn’t mention degrees when degrees are the only thing that means anything here.
The US has fantastic renewable resources in every region, and the money to develop them. It could have developed them decades ago, but instead prioritized the profits of corporations and rich people over health, environment and the survival of civilization. People in developing countries see the US per capita energy use and emissions and think “bastards–what gives them the right?” They do not look at China’s larger total emissions and think the same because China’s per capita emissions are 1/5th of the US’s and the large total is because they have 4 times as many people as the US…
The US’s higher (per capita or total?–see the problem with you leaving out that detail?) electricity use is no excuse, and the fact that not all of our resources are hydro, etc. is also irrelevant. You keep being distracted by, you know, distractions. Meaningless statistics. Or at least the wrong ones in the situation.
Pony Boy, btw, said nothing about hydro, and was referring to the article. The issue is not hydro but clean safe renewable energy. It seems to me that the attempts to deflect the blame from the US and rich people are endless, and only hammering the offenders endlessly with the reality of what they’re doing will change anything.
Or psychotherapy, which I sincerely recommend.
Maybe this will help you get it: Mark 12:41-44
I prefer the King James’ version of most things, but here:
